Listed below are links to weblogs that reference A Word On Not Finishing Reading That Book:


Kerch McConlogue's also OK to decide that just because you started a book, it doesn't mean you have to finish it!

I started reading a best seller a couple of summers ago and it bored me. Every time I'd think to quit, I'd read another review going on and on about how great the book was... and then how hysterical it was in the end. I kept going. But the end? It was NOT even humorous to me!

And the time I wasted wading thru that tome!

I'm pretty sure some evil overlord ingrained in me in grade school that it was unconscionable to start and not finish a book. But now, I'm 50 and I read or don't for my own reasons... and not to please Mrs. Gundrum!

I've learned to quit that which gives me no particular pleasure or value. I'm trying to make that apply to all manner of activities, not just books.

Thanks, Becca, for reminding me.

Jeffs ADD Mind

There are some books that are not worth finishing...but that only becomes obvious when you start reading them.

To get around the "not finishing a book" problem...I read several books at a time. In other words, I will start three or four books. Then for a few nights I will read one book. Then the next few nights switch to another. Then, if there is a book that really draws me in...I'll read that one almost exclusively...then back to the others.

My goal is to have finished all of them before I die. ;)
